"An investigation of nucleate boiling heat transfer in saturated pools of Normal Pentane, Normal Hexane and several mixtures of the two was conducted. The fluids were boiled from gold-plated, copper, cylindrical heat transfer surfaces, 4.96 inches long, and 1.048 inch in diameter. The heat transfer elements were boiled in varying vertical tube arrays at a pressure of 14.70 psia.
It was found that the mixtures boiled with a lower heat transfer coefficient than that for either pure component when boiled alone. When boiling in any of the tube bundle arrangements, the heat transfer coefficients for the upper tubes in the bundle were larger than the heat transfer coefficients for the same heaters in single tube tests. The extent of this increase depends upon the number of tubes in the array and the fluid being boiled.
A semi-emphirical [sic] single tube nucleate boiling correlation which correlates the heat flux as a function of reduced properties is derived and discussed"--Abstract, page iii.
